Arguably the heaviest bluesman ever, Muddy Waters electrified the Chicago blues world with the 1948 release of his first single. By taking the Robert Johnson and Son House-inspired acoustic Delta blues that he had played in Mississippi and firing it up with raw amplification, he created the blueprint for generations of Chicago blues players. Bob Margolin played guitar in Muddy Waters' band for seven years in the '70s, absorbing his music first-hand. In this video, he shares the secrets of Muddy's solo guitar and ensemble work and covers slow blues, boogie blues, slide guitar and guitar bass lines in standard and open tunings. Bob even plays an original song that he wrote as a tribute to his former mentor. Includes the songs I Can't Be Satisfied, Big Leg Woman, Kind Hearted Woman and more. As a special bonus, this video includes rare performance footage of Muddy.

    Rollin Margolin knows how to play Muddy tunes well, and having worked with Muddy for years, probably plays them the way Muddy played them. The problem is the dvd comes with a very weak tab booklet. The DVD allows you to see the songs being played at full speed, and...

    Margolin stops here and there to point something out. But, that's it. The rest is up to you. Slow down the dvd, try to see what fingers are picking, and what frets are being fingered, etc. This would have been fantastic if it just came with tab for what's on the dvd. Still, I learned from it, but it's a lot slower than need be. He says Muddy didn't like to show how to play his music, and it seems Margolin feels the same.
